I'm looking to put together a new system featuring Win7 Pro (or better) 64, i7-950, SLI'd 460's, and I'd love to boot off a RevoDrive, which requires at least a pci-e 2.0 4x slot, or so I have read. Are there any boards out there that support a 16x/16x/4x configuration, as opposed to 16x/8x/8x, aside from the massive 9 pcie slot boards that can only fit in a tree house of a case?

Welcome to Tom's Forums! :) 

The GTX 460 can only barely saturate an x4 and the GTX 580 won't saturate an x8, unless get a RevoDrive with a minimum of 128GB then don't waste your money.

Why no ASUS Sabertooth X58 listed? It meets all of the OP's requirements at a lower price, from what I can tell??

It does I keep on blocking it from my mind because it's 2-WAY SLI; yeah I know in 'this' case it doesn't matter.
